|Mr. Ripple definitely believes he should be celebrated twice!|
|Agave "Mr Ripple" on 3/28/2013 - that's the same tube, for scale|
Zone: 8a to 10b
Height: 60" tall
"This species, or possibly a natural Agave salmiana hybrid, is occasionally seen in Texas and California gardens...always unlabeled. Agave 'Mr. Ripple' makes a 5' tall x 8' wide, rapidly-growing clump with very undulating, broad, blue-green, soft-textured leaves"
Rapidly growing, and hardy through our winters (we got down to ~19 deg F this winter, so far, and you can see just a bit of yellowing near the tips of the leaves), but the real attraction is the leaves:
|Undulating away... and those leaf imprints!|
|Mr. Ripple put on a lot of growth over the summer, and has been growing fairly upright|
Go visit Pam at Digging to see other great foliage, and see everyone's favorite plants (including flowers!) at Danger Garden. Thanks for providing all these great opportunities to discovery other people's gardens!
